    Hi everyone. I'm Saskia , im 57 years old, widow, and live off grid in mid east Saskatchewan. I have 30 acres of land near a river valley. I share my land with my 3 ponies, 3 dogs and 3 cats. :)
    I have no running water. I haul it in from the community well with large bottles. No electricity neither. I have a one burner propane camping stove and I heat my 16 by 24 feet cabin with a woodstove.
    Just like to connect with like minded people.
    Merry Christmas:)

    As time goes on please feel free to share your experiences on this board. Most of us aren't quite so fortunate as you (yet).

    Welcome to SM, Saskia. It seems that you are living the life that a number here might envy. Please feel welcome to share your experiences and knowledge of independent, self sufficient living. Don't be afraid to ask questions and pick the brains of the collective knowledge base here. There is a surprising degree of breadth and depth of knowledge here on a wide variety of topics related, and unrelated to prepping and self sufficient/reliant living.

    It's nice to see an increase in the number of women becoming members of the site.

    Would love to chat with her :)

    I have 3 laptops that I charge 2 times a week at my friends or neighbor friend. And I charge in the truck too when I go to the well or to town for groceries.

    Thank you. And I will tell more about how I live here soon:)
